    I made with Kings Hawaiin Bread for a brunch with my college daughters and their boyfriends kids home for a break . It turned out great. They all loved it and sid it was their new favorite breakfast casserole.

    This is so delicious. It is a sweeter breakfast, but it was very scrumptious.

    This was yummy! I did make one change because I didn't have heavy cream on hand. So I used 2% milk. It still baked up nicely. But my nutritional percentages are quite different. 1 piece: 426 calories, 23g fat (11g saturated fat) 138mg Cholesterol, 262mg Sodium, 52g Carbohydrate, 8g Protein.

    Flavor was excellent but it was still to runny,even though my oven runs hot. So it needed more like 50-60 but I will make this again
